How to Make It in the Art World
New York    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The art world made it through the real-world crash relatively unscathed, but not unchanged. And even as money still courses thick and blue-chip through its veins, the system is beginning to reexamine itself. To mark it, writers at New York magazine decided to present their own version of performance art: a tongue-in-cheek rulebook for how to make it in the art world now—as artist, gallerist, collector, hanger-on.

Arts Advocacy Day from a Newcomer's Point of View
ARTSblog    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
I came to Arts Advocacy Day for the first time this year not knowing exactly what to expect. I've never considered myself a political person. I rarely sign petitions and have never campaigned for any one organization or candidate. I've just always been very passive when it came to politics, most certainly because of my Gen X mentality. So, when my boss asked me to join her I was hesitant, wondering does my voice really matter? But, I've learned a lot in the business world, and one of those things is never to pass up an opportunity to learn something new. So, I quickly reconsidered the opportunity to visit Capitol Hill.

Blouin Artinfo    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

For its ongoing series on resources for artists in these tough times, Artinfo has researched the many funding options available in the United States and compiled a handy guide of those within reach of the average artist.

Negotiating a Faculty Job Offer
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The cover letters, CVs, and writing samples are behind you. You've survived Skype interviews, campus visits, and teaching demonstrations. Your academic job search has gone especially well, and you have a really good feeling you are about to get an official offer to teach at a college or university. You are on the threshold of what most of us find to be the most socially awkward part of the job search process—the part that most mentors don't discuss: negotiating with people who have what you desperately want.

AAUP Election Results Reflect Backlash against Recent Leadership Decisions
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

No Sympathy for the Creative Class
Salon    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
They're pampered, privileged, indulged—part of the "cultural elite." They spend all their time smoking pot and sipping absinthe. To use a term that's acquired currency lately, they're entitled. And they're not—after all—real Americans. This is what we hear about artists, architects, musicians, writers, and others like them. And it's part of the reason the struggles of the creative class in the twenty-first century—a period in which an economic crash, social shifts, and technological change have put everyone from graphic artists to jazz musicians to book publishers out of work—has gone largely untold.

On the Origins of the Arts
Harvard Magazine    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Rich and seemingly boundless as the creative arts seem to be, each is filtered through the narrow biological channels of human cognition. Our sensory world, what we can learn unaided about reality external to our bodies, is pitifully small. Our vision is limited to a tiny segment of the electromagnetic spectrum, where wave frequencies in their fullness range from gamma radiation at the upper end, downward to the ultralow frequency used in some specialized forms of communication. We see only a tiny bit in the middle of the whole, which we refer to as the "visual spectrum." More

Parsing the Cultural Economy's Contradictory Trends, from Sagging Museum Attendance to the Art Book Boom
Blouin Artinfo    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Last year, the well-known advocacy group Americans for the Arts started putting out an annual index that would provide a measure of the health of the arts in the United States. The data was two years behind, though, and working with 2009 numbers things looked understandably grim (memorably, the report called on struggling nonprofits to "die with dignity"). This year, the data from 2010 has been crunched, and while the outlook is not quite as rosy for the art industry as recent auction results may have you believe, it does show that the public began spending more money on art, music, and culture in 2010 as the country emerged from the Great Recession.
